Famous quotes containing the word peoples:

    Only that which points the human spirit beyond its own limitations into what is universally human gives the individual strength superior to his own. Only in suprahuman demands which can hardly be fulfilled do human beings and peoples feel their true and sacred measure.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    Perhaps in His wisdom the Almighty is trying to show us that a leader may chart the way, may point out the road to lasting peace, but that many leaders and many peoples must do the building.
    Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)

    She is watching her country lose its evoked master shape watching
    it lose
    And gain get back its houses and peoples watching it bring up
    Its local lights single homes lamps on barn roofs
    James Dickey (b. 1923)
